The good momentum continues and the side sits at 56k. 64 points was a solid score and our 2 transfers both delivered the goods. Captaincy wasn’t great with an assist but points are points. We’ve also progressed into the next round of the cup after a convincing victory over a ghostship team. Our next opponent are a similar outfit, having made just the 1 transfer, so progression looks likely.
Rotation hasn’t hit us hard but our bench is well prepared for the inevitable. The busy schedule is in full swing so expect to see your bench in full use.
Fabianski started us off with a 9 pointer. A clean sheet, a save and a couple of bonus points has made him the best non premium option this season with 72 points. Patricio also kept a rare clean sheet on our bench. Alonso hit the post but was booked in his side’s 2-1 win. A 1 pointer could’ve been so much more. Wan-Bissaka and Doherty both kept a clean sheet.
Richarlison and Salah both blanked against their Manchester opposition. Richarlison spurned two great opportunities and could’ve had a brace. Salah was nearyl awarded a flukey assist for Shaqiri’s final goal but failed impress and return in the Reds 3 goals. Sane had a brace of assists and 2 bonus points to goal along with it. The German showed his creative side and looks a mainstay in this side while Mendy is on the sidelines. Our two new signings from West Ham delivered straight away. Anderson assisted Snodgrass and the duo scored a combined 17 points. Snodgrass looks a bargain at £5.3m.
Kane assisted a last minute Eriksen winner but the Spurs striker was very deep during the game, looking like more of a provider than a goalscorer. Wilson only managed to come of the bench in his sides defeat after returning from injury.
Fabianski maintains his place in goal at home to Watford. Our whole defence has a home game this week, which on paper looks good. Doherty faces Liverpool but he’s in the side for his attacking threat. Alonso has Leicester who haven’t been that successful going forward as of late but welcomed Vardy back from injury last gameweek. Digne faces Spurs but like Doherty his attacking threat is his main reason for inclusion.
Friday night sees Salah play Wolves at Molineux. Snodgrass and Anderson are against Watford who’ve conceded 2 times or more in their past 5 matches. Richarlison ends his tough spell of games at home to Spurs. Sane faces Palace and the Belgian hasn’t blanked once when he’s played 60+ minutes.
Wilson is fit to start against Brighton after he started midweek against Chelsea. The striker hasn’t blanked for more than 2 games in a row, so he’s due this week. Kane ends the gameweek Monday night against Everton. Harry’s enjoyed playing against Everton in the last few times he’s played them and it’ll be an interesting watch with 3 players involved in that game.
Captaincy: Leroy Sane. His midweek rest solidified this choice. His form and fixture against Crystal Palace was too good to pass on.
